. republicans falsely claim democratic budget increases taxes by $1.5 trillion. as you know the republicans have spent years pressuring democrats to write a budget so they can criticize it and attack it -- so they are assuming the sequestration stays in place which everybody thinks is dumb. so if we're just going to have these fault math arguments i don't know how we're going to get anything done, do you? >> and the false math goes even further, stephanie. their budget wants to reduce the rates on the top wage earners, but they don't tell you how they are going to do it. but in the end it give people who make over a million dollars a decrease in taxes every year. so $200,000 more in tax breaks for the richest -- >> that sounds fair. >> it makes no sense. and then when you ask how they are going to do it? they still protect the tax exemptions for companies who send jobs overseas oil companies, corporate jets -- it's almost too hard to debate something that is this silly. >> stephanie: i know you new there, but do you see any way out of this, that we we -- literally are s
